The noise levels in this area are low, as the streets tend to be reasonably peaceful - although that is not the case close to the railway line. Finally, green spaces, such as Donald Riverbank and Churchill Drive Park, are especially well-spread out and there are a few of them nearby for residents to unwind in, which results in them being very easy to reach from the majority of locations within the neighbourhood.
Active people will welcome the walk-friendly character of Riverview, although daily errands are at times challenging to run on foot. This neighbourhood is an extraordinarily good part of Winnipeg for driving. It is a short car ride to the nearest highway from any location in this area, and it is easy to access a place to park. However, the public transit network in Riverview is not particularly practical. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most properties.
Homeowners occupy around 70% of the dwellings in Riverview and 30% are occupied by renters. The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of this area is an important part of its character.

It is typically practical for home buyers in this neighbourhood to do their groceries on foot.
